‘Someday (Before U Get Bored)’ by Jack Bruno has a sheer power that lies in the sound. Melding the alternative nature of Nirvana with modern pop-hip-hop, Bruno creates a sound that is distinctly his. Bruno is not completely new on the music scene, having made waves since his teen years.
The style of Bruno has come into its own. Watching the new age of hip-hop arise in the modern music scene is deeply exciting, and Bruno is a part of this movement. ‘Someday (Before U Get Bored)’ combines the beat-driven style of hip-hop with the smoothness of alternative punk.
Beyond the lyrics and literal meaning of the song, the beat alone tells the story of how modern and retro-styles can combine in one excellent sound. ‘Someday (Before U Get Bored)’ discusses the reality of both wanting to pursue one’s dreams while also being bogged down by the mundanity of life.
However, there is a hopeful reality to ‘’ because there is a sense of acknowledgment in admitting that those duties exist. Bruno’s song does not say that it is feasible to abandon the structure of everyday life, it instead seeks to open the listener to the possibility that those dreams can still exist.
It has become almost a cliche for a popular musician to surround their music in the message of ‘just stop what you’re doing and get rich,’ but ‘Someday (Before U Get Bored)’ has lyrics that fit its alternative sound. It makes it clear that, no matter a person’s circumstances, dreams can never be taken away. Indeed, it is our goal to do try and carve out an existence that has some meaning to us, even if we can never truly escape the responsibility of our life. To tell the listener that those two realities can live together is, in itself, a somewhat revolutionary statement.
However, one of the strengths of ‘Someday (Before U Get Bored)’ is the fact that it is fun. It was a genuinely light track to listen to, which makes relistens an easy task. ‘Someday (Before U Get Bored)’ is a single by Jack Bruno featuring The Strokes. The song is currently available to buy and stream with an accompanying music video.
